Edwin Tong on Statute Law Reform Bill

(Updated: )

Enhancing the framework for delegation of ministerial functions was one major component of a Bill put up for debate by Second Minister for Law Edwin Tong in Parliament on Tuesday (Jan 5). He said current uncertainty over the issue could hamper efficiency of public administration. Other amendments in the Bill support COVID-19 continuity arrangements for Parliamentary sittings as well as efforts to modernise Singapore’s statute book and make laws more accessible.
